    Ivanka Trump?s Defense for Wearing Her Company?s Clothing Is ?Laughable,? Former Ethics Chief Says

    First daughter Ivanka Trump’s defense for her documented practice of wearing her company’s dresses, jewelry, bags and shoes to political events is “laughable,” a former ethics chief under ex-President Barack Obama said.

    Trump wore apparel for sale from her company, IT Collection LLC, in 46 out of 68, or 68 percent, of pictures she posted on her social media accounts from March to October, converting herself into a “walking billboard for her brand,” The Wall Street Journal reported last week.

    The first daughter responded to the report with an emailed statement: “If what motivated me was to grow my businesses and make money, I would have stayed in New York and done just that.”

    Walter Shaub, who was director of the Office of Government Ethics, also said on CNN's New Day show Tuesday morning that a misuse of government position for private gain is the “international definition of corruption."
    ==============================================
    This is almost as bad as Kellyanne Conway hawking Ivanka's line on Fox & Friends: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/09/u...mp-ethics.html. It's not about making America great again but making the Trump family richer on the Government dime.

    I do hope Ivanka's made in China line is a great success.

    How shallow can some folks be?

    Who cares what she wears? If she has a line of clothing, it makes sense that she'd wear her stuff -- and not something designed and manufactured by someone else. Are all of her clothes and shoes visibly labeled with her name? Does she come right out and say "This is from my line...?"

    If not then they're just clothes.

    What's the next whiny-baby thing we're going to hear?

    Everything in Trump properties was made in China, Bangladesh, Costa Rica or wherever they have sweatshops,

    You really actually give a **** about this? Serious question so I can put you on the pay no mind list.
    If you need to misrepresent your opponent's position, you don't really believe in yours, you have no integrity and as Tony Montana says, "Any man without his word is a cockroach."
